So I bit the bullet, and after my Dell laptop got beaten up and after years of use, I now own a MacBook Air, which will be my primary traveling computer for business purposes, and I'm sure is likely to replace our home desktop Vostro to become my main computer for home use as well. We've been a PC family forever, and the last Apple I owned was a MacIntosh Classic
, back in the 90s, which I used for writing college papers and little else. But I have slowly been adapting an iPhone and iPad into my workflow, and I find that I'm pretty happy in the Apple environment. I don't do anything that interesting with my computers, and I've become sold on the design/ease of use/stability/etc.
So -- what are the most important tips and tricks and things to know about going from a PC to a MacBook? Do I need to install an antivirus program on this sucker? I'm setting up iCloud -- beyond that, do I need to convert my iPhone and iPad over from the PC to this laptop as the primary computer? Seems like it would be sensible, I guess, because my presumption is that iTunes will run more smoothly on this. What's going to frustrate me? What am I going to love?
EDIT: I can already tell that switching from keyboard shortcuts based on "control" to "command" is going to drive me nuts for a while.
